The San Francisco Munich Trio

Sunday, March 20, 2016 at 7:30


The San Francisco Munich Trio will transport you back to the turn of 20th Century at the time when the Woodland Opera House was built. The performance will consist of compositions which originated in Paris around the time of “Toulouse-Lautrec and La Vie Moderne”: works by Heitor Villa-Lobos, Alexandre Tansman and Frédéric Chopin, one of his last compositions, the beautiful Sonata op. 65 for cello & piano. Also on the program are a trio “Pathétique” by Michail Glinka, the father of the Russian Romantic and Ludwig van Beethoven’s Variations on a theme of Handel, whom Beethoven considered “the greatest composer.”


Rostropovich-student Rebecca Rust and her husband, Friedrich Edelmann, former principal bassoonist of the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra for 27 years, together with the Russian born pianist Dmitriy Cogan will demonstrate with their complex and sublime performance this unique time period, when Paris was the cultural center of the world.

Ms. Rust, who began cello lessons with the Berkeley “Grand Dame” of cello, Margaret Rowell, and continued studies with Bernard Greenhouse and Mstislav Rostropovich, has concertized in Europe, America, Africa, Israel, Japan, and China. Greenhouse said of her, “Rebecca Rust is what I consider one of the important young cellists to come from the American musical scene”.In Japan, she has performed several times at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo for Their Majesties the Emperor and Empress of Japan.

His solo playing and teaching has taken him to Europe, Japan, U.S.A., Israel, South America and China. His book Memories of Maestro Sergiu Celibidache was published in Japan in 2009.
